hey midnight sun,

yeah, all Hare Krishnas look alike.

They sound as you say, but remember the Apple LP they put out, produced by George Harrison? All off-key, except maybe track one, side one -

oh, and they had this one Krishna dude who could actually sing - you can hear some of his demos from the '70s here on LMA

http://www.archive.org/details/HHVisnujanaSwamiNectarofDevotion

where the tagline reads, many claim he was the best singer...


not sure if anyone will bother checking this out.

Hey, I used to go see a really good local group called Midnight Sun. They played on Haight St.in the '70s. Any relation?

HH Visnujana Swami and the chipmunks, not quite as good as Alvin's ensemble, but close (i can't believe i actually checked that out) and to show i'm not all negative, he is the best Hare Krishna singer i've heard so far

no, i ripped the name "midnight sun" from a half a dozen or so local businesses...there's a clue for high flow, how many towns in the arctic (or antartic) could possibly have businesses with that name?

lol, you're not kidding, the streams really do sound like the chipmonks! Yow!!

I guess you then went the extra mile and tried the downloads (which play at the right speed!?)

Good Lord!

I swallowed my pride recently and contacted ISKCON,
in hopes they would have tapes of this seminal event at the Avalon Ballroom with their guru and the good ol' Grateful Dead:

see attatchment.

Strange bedfellows!

managed to open it with Corel Photo Paint

"Mantra Rock Dance...bring cushions, drums, bells, cymbals"

btw cream-puff-war, did ISKCON ever get back to you with any recordings of the event?

looks like there isn't much known about it;

might have been interesting...

midnight sun -

ISKCON didn't get back to me, but it would be worth someone's time to try again.
I emailed one of their tape/cd/dvd outlets, and posted an inquiry about the event on their bulletin board in the '60s thread.

Guessing from the Bhaktivedanta archives posted on LMA, they taped quite a lot of the 1966-1967 era.

Whether they saved the whole show, it's possible though the rock portion wouldn't have been circulated among themselves.

Perhaps it sits on a reel, buried in their tape vaults.

They do have tapes (and free d/l) of Swami Bhaktivedanta meeting with The Beatles; and they sell a collection of George Harrison stuff.

This is a research project for someone who really loves the young Dead... I hope someone tries and succeeds.
Money might motivate them to search.

I read somewhere that the Krishnas sometimes brought food backstage to Grateful Dead shows...

Maybe they never forgot the Dead's generosity in helping put on the benefit that got them their 2nd temple in America.

Markovo, just north of Kamchatka Penninsula? A stones throw from AK.

Hmmmmm, no I doubt that. I think my 1st guess was too close for comfort...
